    • Rationality Is A Process, Not A Conclusion (Nuclear Weapons Edition)
      A lot of mistakes come from assuming rationality means “thinks the same way I do” rather than “reasons from premises I might not share.” Left than 1/1000 economists predicted the financial collapse, because they reasoned from assumptions like “the market is self-correcting” or “housing prices never go down.” (Sometimes both at the same time, which is rarely […]

Operation Turn Down Continues…

I found this post from Steve Corbett in the comments.

It’s A Turndown Day

Steve Corbett Reporting

Monday, May 19, 2008

“Operation Turndown” has no headquarters or mailing address. We offer no coffee mugs, bumper stickers or T-shirts for sale. You cannot contribute cash or deduct your investment in tomorrow from you federal income tax.

But “Operation Turndown” is no mirage.

The voice of a movement that got underway last week on WILK News Radio belongs to all Democrats who refuse to do as we’re told and vote for Barack Obama if he receives the party nomination for president.

If Obama’s the chosen one, we’re turning him down.

Count us out.

Action Words

Here are some other things you can do to get your point across to the DNC:

You can send an email to the DNC expressing your thoughts on the FL and MI problem. Ask them to seat the delegations from both states as is as the solution has been obstructed for too long. Be polite but assertive in your email. Here is the link to the form on Hillary’s site. You might want to leave a little something in her tip jar while you’re at it.

Steve Corbett at WILK radio in Scranton, PA is kicking off Operation Turn Down at 3:00pm. If you’re tired of the media haka, the Frat Boys for Obama and the accusation that you are a racist just because you think Hillary is a better candidate, lend your voice to thousands of others. If you call in, be sure to have your talking points prepared in advance. It helps you deliver your message calmly. And I wouldn’t focus on Hillary as a victim in all of this. She’s not. She’s a presidential candidate and has to expect a lot of negativity. The fact that she’s a woman means she has to expect more than most candidates. sort of like Jackie Robinson when he broke the color barrier in baseball. The problem is that the sexist behavior directed at her will have broader repercussions on the society at large if the media and the Obama campaign aren’t held accountable. But the real victims in this primary season are the voters who are being held hostage to the proportional delegation system, undemocratic caucuses and last but not least, the withholding of delegates from FL and MI that will give the necessary critical mass to Hillary’s delegate count. She is being held to a higher standard than Obama. He only has to reach 2025 delegates to be considered a winner while she has to reach 2209. Is that fair to the candidate or the voters?

Friday: Fast II and call to action

Ok, folks, it looks like this ball is starting to roll. With HCFP doing a haka and Steve Corbett at WILK launching Operation Turndown today, we are seeing thousands of people finally losing patience with the DNC and pushing back against Obama as the inevitable candidate.

We know that Clinton is the stronger, more qualified candidate. We know that the Republicans would like nothing more than to be running against an unvetted, inexperienced weak candidate like Obama. And we know that Obama got to be where he is by suppression of Clinton voters by a.) undemocratic caucuses in heavily Republican states, b.) the active participation of the DNC Rules and Bylaws committee who imposed an unnecessarily harsh penalty on Florida and Michigan c.) the refusal of the Obama campaign to work towards a solution for those two states before the primary season ends , d.) discouraging donors from contributing to Clinton’s campaign or any outside group that might be friendly to her and e.) the unconscionable media narrative of the past two weeks that Obama is now our nominee with the clear intention of depressing voter turnout. In short, Barack Obama “wins” by suppressing the votes of his opponents.

Breaking!: Radio Talk Host Had it with Racism Accusation

This little ditty was sent in by commenter Nana. It looks like the Obamaphiles have pushed the envelope:

WooHoo……………….Wilk talk radio here in Scranton, PA is going wild this afternoon. Host Steve Corbett has had it with being called a racist for supporting Hillary Clinton and has stated he will not vote for Obama. The lines are going crazy with calls from people in NE PA who feel the same way. They will not vote for Obama and will vote for McCain if they have to to stop him. The mementum is starting against the Democratic Party. Keep it going all over the USA
